They say a mothers love can last forever, and the same is true for chimps. This mother and daughter have an unbreakable bond. They love each other dearly and can often be seen cuddling, playing and generally being very sweet. It is a beautiful reminder that it is not only humans who can love.

Chimps can be very loving, and a mother’s love can last forever. They can often be seen cuddling and touching each other to form connections and support. These physical acts are incredibly important, helping to develop relationships which are crucial for survival.
Mothers in particular are fantastic examples of the huge love that chimps have. They are kind, play with their babies, and are always there is a flash whenever they cry out.
HOW TO HELP
Based off real animals that Gillie and Marc met while studying, the public will be able to meet individual animals. This will help them to realise that there are apes with unique personalities, thoughts and emotions. The loss of one individual is just as devastating as losing an individual human.
With public art, more people will come into contact with these sculptures, will stop and consider them, will take a photograph, and will discuss this with their friends and family. Through this increased exposure, the message of love, family, and conservation will be spread much further than any piece of art in a gallery ever could. It will bring people into close contact and will help them to fall in love. With love comes a greater urge to want to create a change and save the great apes.
The sculpture will be aligned with the hashtags #LoveTheLast and #ChimpsAreFamily to raise unparalleled awareness about the sculpture’s cause across the globe.
To help protect the great apes you can adopt a chimp and help them via the WWF: https://www.wwf.org.uk
